12oz bottle into my Ithaca glass. It poured orange amber in color with a spotty white lacing scattered around the top of the beer.

The aroma shows some banana and clove like spices coming out of the Belgian yeast. It has a pretty big bready, sweet maltiness to it. A little bit of a citrusy, orange flavor is there as well.

The taste has more of the sweet, bready, candied malts to it up front. The finish is where more of the Belgian yeast starts to add banana and clove spices. It has a little bit of a candied orange like flavors to it as well.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being below average for the style. Overall it was a pretty decent and drinkable beer, but it wasn't one that really stood out in the style. Not a bad American version though.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of fruits, malts. Taste is malts, light fruits, some alcohol, slightly sour, hints of vinegar. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, but there are much better examples of the style.

I enjoyed the taste of this ale, which was built along classic Belgian lines - casually sweet with spiced accents and a light ashen finish. And there was no undue heat or harsh candi alcohol. But the lack of carbonation, body, and lather were difficult setbacks to overcome. And the aroma was buttery with a dash of pepper spice. I sense there's a fine ale lurking here somewhere, but it was repressed by a few peripheral issues, perhaps related to bottling.

Decent, but not much of a tripel, the yeasty/spicy notes that you expect from the style take the background. However it hides the alcohol quite well, one of the more easy drinking 9%ers I've had.

Small head poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass that dissipated quickly. Light amber color that is slightly translucent. Taste is good but not outstanding. Sort of a sour taste that disappears quickly. Definitely a Belgian style. Smooth and no bitterness. This would be a good summer ale. Refreshingly delicious!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured from 22 oz bomber into a tulip.

Appearance: nice slightly opaque tawny golden color with almost no head; what head there was dissipated quickly.

Smell: quite subtle; malty and very slightly tart and fruity. Not bad, but I would have liked more of it.

Taste: smooth malt flavor with a little bit of toastiness/biscuitiness to it. Not much in the way of fruit or ester flavors; it's not bad, but it could be a lot better.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a little creaminess to it. Again, not bad, but not particularly exciting.

Drinkability: for all its mediocre qualities, it's still a perfectly reasonable tripel and is quite drinkable despite its ABV.

A - A golden looking Belgian beer, perfect color.

S - You get a sugary sweet smell like any other triple.

T - The 9 percent alcohol is well hidden for the most part. You get the sugary bubblegum fruity taste with a dry semi-bitter finish.

M -Drinkable, very clean and crisp. You can drink a 6 pack of these and still ask for another.

O - I picked up a 6 pack for only 7 dollars at my local total wine. And this is honestly a STEAL. Go pick this up, it has a low price, high drinkability, and a high ABV. hahaha. You wont be disappointed.
